Danecourt School

About Us

Thank you for visiting our website.


Danecourt is a special school catering for primary aged children who have special education needs. Originally designated for children with moderate learning difficulties the school now caters for a wider breadth of need including children with severe learning difficulties, autism and social emotional mental health needs. In April 2018 the school became part of a local multi academy trust called Barnsole Primary Trust (BPT). The trust is led by Sean McKeown (CEO) and in addition to Danecourt School includes Barnsole Primary School and Bligh Primary School.

At Danecourt our mission is to provide all pupils with a “stimulating learning environment where every individual is valued, respected, safe and successful”. All pupils receive a personalised curriculum tailored to meet their individual needs. The highly trained staff maintain high expectations of what each individual pupil is able to achieve. Staff work collaboratively with families and a range of other agencies in order to meet the pupils needs. As a result, pupils make good progress academically, emotionally and socially. Pupil achievement is hugely valued and celebrated in a manner that is meaningful and appropriate for each pupil.

Please feel free to contact us to make an appointment to come and visit, meet some of the pupils and staff and look around our fabulous school.
